    Default Entrapment

    Again, another example of a complete no-no in most parts of the world but the fine line is tolerated in America.

    Crazy. And disgusting.

    Government agents can pose as prostitutes or leave car doors open and generate all sorts of favorable opportunities for people to commit crime here. And you guys think that arrests made on that basis are OK?

    I'm sobbing in disbelief.

    Freedom? Give me a break.

    It's more Russia than...er...Russia.

    I was watching Cops...

    From which, I am led to understand that most arrests in America happen something like this.

    Police stop car.
    Police find driver didn't turn up to court for stealing a candy bar from a candy store.
    Driver gets handcuffed.
    Driver gets wrestled to the ground.
    Driver gets searched.
    Car gets searched.
    Nothing found.
    Driver gets sent to jail.
    Cop talks about how dangerous his job is.

    Legalize prostitution, advertise it on TV, and ban 'legal' gambling. All of America's woes solved in one shot.

    Why ban gambling?

    The real cure to America's woes is far easier.

    Tax gas.

    Because the US has no public transport to speak of, outside of large cities, the poor would be the ONLY persons to suffer from this issue, and now we would have to issue gas stamps to get them to work.

    Tax VEHICLES that get low mileage so the poor can make it to work.

    Anyone who gets trapped by a John Sting, a bait car, or whatever......was up to no good in the first place. Pay the piper!
